Mount Taylor - Canberra, Australia
Mount Taylor
Tuggeranong Parkway, Canberra, ACT 2902Map
Neighborhood: Tuggeranong
Overview

Formed during a period of intense volcanic activity 420 million years ago, Mount Taylor marks the northern edge of the Tuggeranong Valley. This steep hill has exposed igneous rocks near the summit and weathered volcanic soils on the slopes and base. There are several walking trails along Sulwood Drive and Athlon Drive, but the Athlon Drive access trail allows you to drive part of the way. The climb to the summit is demanding but the views are outstanding, overlooking the Tuggeranong Valley, and to the north a vista over Woden Valley to the city and beyond.
